Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-5185) Core Selector not compatible with text based web browsers (lynx/elinks).
Date Fri, 23 Aug 2013 15:55:53 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-5185:

I can't speak for [~steffkes], who does most of our UI work, but I suspect that the current
level of functionality would be very difficult to achieve in a way that's compatible with
a text browser.

If you're trying to use a text-based browser, the chance of it running on Windows is pretty
small.  If you have ssh access to the server from a graphical client, you can forward a local
port to the Solr port on the remote system, and then access localhost:port/solr in a graphical
browser on the machine making the ssh connection.  This works with PuTTY as well as virtually
all commandline ssh clients.  If access requires a multi-hop ssh, you can do a port-forwarding
chain.  It can be a little confusing to set up a port-forwarding chain, but it does work.
